Cellulose insulation has a functional lifetime of more than 50 years!
There is no need to replace or maintain the insulation during normal building use. During the installation of loose-fill or blow in insulation, any waste material is added into the building shell where the insulation is installed, so there is effectively no installation waste.
Blown in cellulose insulation is produced primarily from post-consumer wood pulp (newspapers), typically accounting for roughly 85 % of the insulation by weight. Cellulose insulation is treated with fire-retardant. Borates and boric acid are used most commonly and account for the other 15 % of the cellulose insulation by weight.
Cold Rooms Over A Garage? Cellulose. Existing Walls With Fiberglass Performing Poorly? Cellulose Can Solve It. New Construction? Cellulose. Existing Attic Needs Upgraded R-Value? Cellulose
Blow in Cellulose Insulation Tops Fiberglass in Standards
Blow in Cellulose Insulation is covered by the American Society for Testing and Materials Standard Specifications (ASTM). The ASTM covers several material properties, including:
- Flame spread
- Smoldering combustion
- Odor emission
- Moisture vapor absorption
- Fungi resistance
- Adhesive/cohesive strength (spray on only)
Blown In Cellulose Benefits
Cellulose is superior to other insulation materials and benefits and cons must be considered separately on each home project.
